Tai Chi by Numbers
CHI LIFE, our goal is to provide a form to the practical applications as well as the full-contact boxing aspects of Tai Chi Chuan. The martial aspect of Tai Chi is rarely taught on the level of true fighting awareness. In order for Tai Chi to protect you, you must trust the principles of the foundation, which is martial arts. Without this, you won’t have a good understanding of Tai Chi Chuan. The approach is scientific and done in a safe environment. It will in no way be harmful to a practitioner, but gives them a true scene of self-protection, which is important to the Tai Chi enthusiast.
WHAT? With numbers, it is easy to follow and you will instantly see the merit and the method by the completion of the first posture.
WHY? This is a clear map to the true essence and foundation of Tai Chi Chuan, (grand ultimate boxing). First, by learning the mechanics of the movements. Second, understanding each postures and its purpose (health benefits, and martial art application). Third, learning rhythm, timing and breathing and how they connect each movement together while combining the eight principles of Tai Chi.
HOW ITS DIFFERENT? First routine, 13 postures, is like the alphabet for Yang style Tai Chi. It covers all the main postures and the full routine by first understanding each martial application. It gives a practitioner more clarity of the purpose of the foundation in the routine and its relationship to boxing and health.
At Chi Life, this profound Eastern philosophy is transmitted in a way that is clear to the Western mind…without dilution. Our unique Tai Chi training method will help you maintain your youth and flexibility and relieve stress from your body and your life. Relaxation is the key to the art of ageless and stress-free living.
